    CUPS login

    anyone know how to get into the cups admin page on localhost?

    I can get to http://localhost:631 but am asked to authenticate on the admin page - any idea whats the default username/pasword. I tried all sorts of combinations.

    I can turn off authentication in cups.conf by commenting out the relevent bits but don't see anything w.r.t what the password is??

    Have you tried root and root's password?

    sorry, i was being a muppet.

    The default configuration requires that you use the root username and the corresponding password to authenticate the request.

    remember aswell if you want to get to the cups admin page from other machines its usually restricted by default to only be accessable on localhost.

    Mind you I find editing the configuration files easier in the long run once the print queues are setup.
